Meet Our Massage
Ciao! My name is Samantha Story, C.M.T. I was born and raised in Green Bay, WI. I joined the U.S. Navy my senior year of high school and headed to boot camp August 1993. After serving 20 years on active duty, I found myself called to helping people find, recover, and maintain their own health and wellness. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Complementary and Alternative Health and followed that by attending the Cayce/Reilly School of Massage Therapy to learn both the massage technique and the holistic health information in the curriculum. My philosophy is each body is unique; experiences, injuries, emotions, past and present environments and practices change and mold their bodies into a very unique vessel. The training I have received and the experience I now have after working out of a chiropractor’s office for over a year allows me to personalize treatment to achieve the goals of the client for their session. I look forward to working with you and helping you find the balance and peace your body needs and your mind craves.
Reflexology (Feet, Hands, & Ears) is a wonderful way to receive the benefits of a full body massage without the need to disrobe and be touched in every area. Reflexology is a science which deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to all of the glands, organs, and parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexes properly can help many health problems in a natural way and is a type of preventative maintenance. Reflexology helps to normalize body functions. It is a safe, effective way to decreased stress and better health.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki may help heal by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached. This may cause the negative energy to break apart and fall away. In so doing, Reiki may clear, straighten and heal energy pathways, thus allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.
Therapeutic Massage (Cayce/Reilly Holistic Technique) uses the following methods to relax and balance the nervous system: Special Hand Movements, Four Different Spinal Patterns, Range of Motion for muscles & joints, abdominal massage to help improve elimination of waste. The Cayce/Reilly technique provides vibration to the muscles and, unlike other massage techniques, also vibrates the glands and abdominal organs to support proper functioning and digestion. Therapists gently tap the pituitary, thyroid, and thymus gland to stimulate endocrine activity. The Cayce/Reilly Holistic Technique is a combination of the following practices to help the body heal, repair, renew, and return to its natural balance: Swedish Massage, Osteopathic Medicine, Naturopathic Medicine. I also utilize myofascial release, deep tissue massage, acupressure, and trigger point therapy as needed to customize the session.
